Best moment of the Oscars

In case you were in a deep freeze or doing hard time, last night was Hollywood's back-slapping night better known as the Academy Awards. How was it? Eh. It was great that the lady who directed Point Break finally got recognized by the Academy, even if it was for The Hurt Locker and not for the great cinematic masterpiece that gave us "I am an EFFFF BEEEEEEE IIIIIIIIII Agent!" It was also cool that the Dude won for Best Actor, leading to an acceptance speech with a lot of ins and outs man.

But by far, the best part of the night for us was the John Hughes tribute. If you grew up in the 80s, Hughes was probably as much a part of your life as your mom and dad. His movies captured teenage angst, defined pop culture and left us all dropping quotes like "Mess with the bull, get the horns" for the rest of our lives. In fact, if you want to know how much of a genius Hughes was, consider that he managed to get Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Anthony Michael Hall both on the Oscars in the year 2010. That's talent. But what else did we learn from that montage? We learned that Ally Sheedy is still smokin' hot, Molly Ringwald is a tranny and Judd Nelson needs cab fare.
